Lettuce Attraction and Stone Fruit Attraction are two of the main events that will take place this October
Within the framework of the 9th edition of Fruit Attraction, the conference “Lettuce Attraction” will bring together, on the 18th of October, the main companies linked to the lettuce and leafy vegetable sector.

The conference will have international speakers, and it is aimed at producers, exporters, importers, retailers, researchers, seed companies, food processors, cooks, and specialised journalists. It will be used to inform about the economic, gastronomic and nutritional importance of lettuces and other leafy vegetables in Spain.
